Assessment Information:
California officially joined and is currently a governing state in the SMARTER Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC).

SBAC: http://www.smarterbalanced.org/about/member-states/#california

The CDE will partner with LEAs regarding potential programmatic refinements designed to align with various assessments and will promote familiarity with SBAC assessments and how they may be used to inform instruction. The SBAC is developing assessments for mathematics and ELA for students in grades 3 through 8 and grade 11. SBAC assessments will not assess students with significant disabilities as they will still take the California Alternate Performance Assessment.

  • Spring 2013 - Pilot testing of summative assessments
  • Spring 2014 - Field testing of summative assessments
  • Spring 2015 - Administer operational summative assessment

More Information:
The ACSC was able to add up to 15% to the CCSS for each subject. Consequently, they added information to address any perceived gaps and to ensure that the rigor of California’s existing standards would be maintained.
